hi, want to first say that i absolutely love gal civ games. great job for coming up with the game, continuing to work on it, and also for the incredible level of involvement of stardock with the community.
so i had some issues with lag as my game in the vanilla version of cc3 so i tried version 2.8.
i started in an immense galaxy with like 3 alien races and set it towards almost everything abundant. basically to test out the version and see what i think and to compare the differences without too much challenge. i chose terran as my race. the first thing i noticed was that there were no research labs available upon game start on earth. i thought, thats weird ... but continued playing awhile to see if maybe that was one of the changes and that i had to unlock them. i researched up to tech capital and have 45 colonies now and still cant place any scientific buildings except planetary core.
is this normal? have i somehow missed unlocking something? is this a bug or a feature?
